Third Annual Ghaffur Family Day

One of the things that Mommy and the kids get to do in Malaysia is to attend the "Third Annual Ghaffur Family Day." We all missed the second gathering last year. This year the organizer decided to have it in the Historical State of Malacca. We heard that last year was a lot of fun, and we are excited to be able to attend this one.

The customary tradition is to exchange gifts. Everybody is supposed to buy a gift under $20, and then there'll be a raffle at the end of the Family Day. You won't get your own gift of course since the idea is to exchange gifts with your uncles, aunties, and cousins. So Mommy, Melur and Arman, we each got a gift - Mommy just chose books for all since they were easy to wrap. Mommy and Uteh spent the night wrapping the gifts for the Family Day tomorrow, while Melur and Arman spent the night watching TV, "helping" Mommy and Uteh, and re-decorating Mak Long's apartment (see the upside down pictures of Mak Long and Nenek in the background).

So tomorrow we will be leaving for Malacca… can't wait to see everybody… I am sure the organizer has something great planned for all of us.
